I am trying to set an environment variable in an .htaccess file and retrieve it in PHP. I've looked through a bunch of other threads here on SO but everything I've tried so far has failed.
I've added this line to the .htaccess file:
SetEnv SPECIAL_PATH /foo/bin
I have tried retrieving this value using the getenv() PHP function:
<?php $specialPath = getenv('SPECIAL_PATH'); ?>
I have runned phpinfo() to see the list of available environment variables, SPECIAL_PATH is not there. I am puzzled as to why this is not working.
